New York Fashion Week: Creatures of the Wind Fall 2015

creatures-of-the-wingOne of my favorite makeup eras of all time is the 1960s, so the fact that styles from the 60s-70s are coming back into style makes me ridiculously happy. The Fall 2015 showing of Creatures of the Wind during this season’s New York Fashion Week was full of retro-themed fashions and hair and makeup looks that were made modern by blending style home runs of other decades past. Read on to find out how the effortlessly cool looks came to be!

“The collection is inspired by “Americana”- a mash up of the 1920’s, 60’s and 70’s – more specifically the 1970’s looking at the 1920’s,” NARS Director of Global Artistry James Boehmer said in a press release. “The silhouettes reference psychedelic and progressive rock, with icons such as Anjelica Huston and Sissy Spacek informing the makeup look.” Can we say that we love that entire creative process right there?

“Clean, perfected matte skin with no shine” ruled the runway. “Loads of mascara was applied like it would have looked in this era – pasty, a bit dry, and deliberate – applied only to the outer half of the top and bottom lashes. Eyelids were left their natural color and texture to contrast the rest of the face. A brushed up glossy brow finishes the look.”
